On Saturday, the Sprint Shootout is first to set the positions for the Sprint later that evening. The Qatar Grand Prix takes place on Sunday, October 8.
After the race in Qatar concludes, Formula 1 will take a break lasting a fortnight. The United States Grand Prix in Austin will follow and is the first event in a triple header with Mexico and Brazil.
